Master image topic

  1. I'm new here and look forward to many nights reading the massive material provided by everyone.

    Although i did a search on "master image" and did not find anything specific, i'm hoping to either be pointed in the right direction or begin the topic here.

    I currently have 1300 workstations that are about to undergo a critical upgrade. I've been reading a lot about using a master image to deploy WinXP on various platforms. My agency has all Dell pc's ranging from GX260 to the new 745 (optiplex?) (as well as laptops). The GX260 are on their way out and will be replaced with 745's.

    Although i read thru several documentations on the how-to's, my findings left me a little lost. i would like clarity on the following:

    - how to obtain all device drivers from each platform in preparation of a master image
    - how to properly setup sysprep.inf for unattended setup in a master image
    - how to setup various applications for various departments in a master image

    I want to do the grunt of the work now so that deployment is smooth.

    I accept all recommendations, links, suggestions that you may have as this is all new to me (even though master imaging has been around since win2k?!? yikes).....

    I'll try to update lots of stuff here as I've dealt with this issue for some time now. If money is not a big hold-up then take a look at this tool -
